Drag Story Hour is returning to the City of West Hollywood starting on April 15, 2023. The series of story time readings by drag performers for children of all ages is presented by the City of West Hollywood in partnership with the West Hollywood Library.
A rally was planned in defense of Drag Story Hour at the West Hollywood Library, 625 N. San Vicente Blvd. BAMN, the event organizer cancelled the event because they don’t anticipate there being any opposition protesting the drag queen reading.
BAMN describe themselves as a “Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, Integration and Immigrant Rights and Fight for Equality By Any Means Necessary.”
This article has been updated to reflect that the demonstration is not happening.
Drag Story Hour was created by Michelle Tea and RADAR Productions in San Francisco in 2015. In 2017, the City’s Arts Division funded the first Drag Story Hour at the West Hollywood branch of the LA County Public Library. The West Hollywood series is produced by Pickle the Drag Queen.
